Goliath Tank (Desert) is a Boss in NieR: Automata. Goliath Tank units have multiple versions that are encountered throughout different Locations. Each of them have their own unique data that can be obtained and not all Goliath Tank encounters are hostile. Bosses are special larger Enemies that can be encountered throughout the game in different Locations. A Boss encounter will usually signify game progress or a chapter ending when following the main storyline. Some of these bosses may first be encountered As NPCs to introduce some Lore and backstory before they are inevitably faced in a Combat encounter as a Boss. Boss encountered are identified by their introductory title that will be displayed just before combat begins. Their HP bar and Level will also be displayed above the character throughout the combat encounter. Some bosses in the game may be optional and avoided. All information on optional or required bosses stats, Locations, encounters and strategies can be found on their designated Bosses

Amusement Park Goliath Tank  In game data:

  • "Found in the ruins of an amusement park, this tank-like, Goliath-class machine lifeform has a tread-based system of locomotion that lets it cover all manner of terrain. Appearance-wise, the unit seems to be part of the park itself, right down to its decorative lights and a turret that fires colorful confetti.

Goliath Tank (Desert) Strategies NieR Automata

Goliath Tank (Desert) Strategy (Melee) NieR Automata

Much like its counterparts encountered previously, the Goliath Tank in the desert is a similar variant with additional features. When encountered at the desert, two tanks will appear at a time. This time the orbs from the tank are more desse and the tank comes equipped with spikes to protect its rear so revealing its weakness will not be as easy.

In previous encounters If you don't mind forfeiting the Machine Core, you can approach the hatch in the middle by climbing onto the back platform which will reveal a canister containing the machine's power core. This is the tank's weakpoint. You can focus here to quickly deplete it's HP but it as a result, the tank will no longer drop the Machine Core.

With this tank, you will be forced to keep a distance to avoid damage from spikes and orbs. They will still have a similar moveset from previous variants.
